We’ve all got that one friend who can’t get enough of home design. Whether it’s their quirky artwork, gorgeous glassware, or wallpaper that is impossible to find anywhere else, you’re always a bit envious of some oddity that you spot about their house. If you’re looking for something unique for a loved one or something to style your own house, I’ll do my best to steer you in the right direction with my suggestions below. There’s a mix of stuff from here, there and everywhere that’ll (hopefully) impress any homeware lover.
Diamond Decanter Set, thumbsup
This decanter makes such a wonderful table centrepiece and the diamond glasses make it the perfect set.
Smelly Room Tin Candle, Betsy & Blue Boutique
Definitely a novelty gift but it does make me giggle. The orange and grapefruit scent is perfect for covering any bad smells!
Jali Table Cloth, The Summer House
The Summer House has a lovely collection of elegant table cloths, it was tough to choose which one to feature. The Jali one keeps things simple and look great indoors and outdoors.
Ready For The Races Print, Amelia Anderson
I’m a big fan of Amelia’s animal portraits, so was delighted to find she does prints too. The elephant one is definitely a favourite.
Rope Words, Betsy & Blue Boutique
Pick up some cool and quirky rope words from Betsy and Blue. Choose from ‘love’, ‘happy’, ‘hello’ and ‘gorgeous’.
Colourful Glass Bud Vases, The Pink Pheasant
It’ll be tough to buy just one of these, as they look so lovely together in all the different colours! Leave them empty or add one or two flowers.
Bespoke Ruler High Chart, The Real Ruler High Chart Company
These rulers are pretty special. You can customise them with your family’s name, kids’ names, special dates or anything else you can think of.
Turquoise Blue & Gold Alarm Clock, Addison Ross
Add a pop of colour to their desk or bedside table with one of these gorgeous silent clocks from Addison Ross. Super simple, super chic.
Botanical Collage Kit, Cai & Jo
This collage kit is such a lovely way to brighten up your kitchen, conservatory or any wall around the house.
Petit Moroccan Espresso Cup, Chabi Chic (Savannah Willow)
Handmade and painted in Morocco, I’m loving these stylish espresso cups. The proceeds provide sustainable income to the Moroccan artisans.
Pink Achillea Foliage Fabric Notice Board, Handcrafted by Harriet
With the family here, there and everywhere, a noticeboard has become invaluable for keeping track of everyone’s schedules and not losing letters from school. Handcrafted by Harriet has a lovely range of fabric print noticeboards to choose from.

Feather Wreath, Forever Wild Interiors
A wreath doesn’t just have to be for Christmas and this feather one is very much an all-year-round interior. It makes a great table centrepiece too.
Tea Towel And Tray, Indigo Prawn
How lovely is this vibrant matching set? Indigo Prawn can kit you out with prawn-themed art prints, cards, aprons and towels.
Dark Green Pheasant Glass Tray, Melissa Lafave London
Hand-painted and finished with 18k gold edging, this pheasant tray will complement any bedside or coffee table. It’s available in red too.
Melamine Tray, The Mews Furnishings
It’s always good to have trays on-hand for serving drinks, cakes and everything else. I like the quirky chicken feet pattern on this one.
Starburst Salt Cellar, ASL Ceramics
These bowls an ideal size for condiments. I love these as kitchen decorations — they’re almost too lovely to use!
Martini Print, Emma Van Zeller
Emma’s ‘Limericks For The Loo’ collection is just brilliant. I’m loving this Dorothy Parker quote on Martini and the ‘perfect husband’ quote made me giggle.
Lipstick Print, Emma Van Zeller
Small Round Enamel Light Pink Tray, Turnbull & Hooch
Turnbull & Hooch is one of my favourite places to pick up unique tableware. I know that trays and bowls are gifts that you know are always going to come in useful, so these are my two top picks.
Round Enamel Red Tray, Turnbull & Hooch

Give a gift steeped in history with one of these teacup candles. Each china cup comes with its own hand-written background story. You can reuse again and again once the candle has burnt down.
Coated Linen Tablecloth, Polkadot Parsley
These tablecloths are genius for anyone who has kids. Easily wipe clean after whatever mess they’ve made.
Scallop Tole Planter in Yellow, Matilda Goad
A bold and brighter planter suitable for indoors and outdoors. I think it’d look fantastic filled with herbs on the kitchen windowsill.
Table Napkins With Kantha Stitch Border, Truffle Home
What gorgeous napkins! These are perfect for both formal and informal dining. Truffle Home recommends teaming with a plain table cloth.
